do you mean 58662, you wrote 56882?

This surgery supports 56882 as cysts were removed from both the right ovary and the fallopian tubes. You would not also report 49322 for the drainage as the cyst was then removed and this drainage was not done on a different cyst. However, another surgeon started the procedure so you may have to report 56882 with a modifier -52 as your surgeon did not open, but did close. You will need to indicate the percentage of work not done in this case, but I think the payer may still be willing to give you full credit. Oh and hydatid cysts are caused by a tape worm and path report does not support that this was the case - just some fallopian tube cysts. Your Dx for this case will be D27.0 and N83.6
